This product will restore shine to a vessels topsides and all areas above the waterline.
Hull Wax is designed for a boats topside, it helps seal the microscopic pores in the boats gel-coat caused by UV damage.
Hull Wax makes the boat’s various above water substrates much easier to clean and resistant to staining.

- Apply with a soft lint-free cloth, working into and on to the surface thoroughly, leaving behind a thin film of wax polish.
- Buffing can begin within 30 minutes of application or longer.
- A higher shine and better take of the wax will occur if buffing and burnishing are started after letting the polish set for an hour or more, even as long as overnight. This allows time for the solvent to thoroughly evaporate off.
- For a higher shine apply a second application, allowing the polish to set a couple hours before buffing off.
- For ease of buffing use the Burnisher aka Pine Brush.
- Clean tools using Mineral Spirits.
